Nancy Pelosi spent the majority held her weekly press conference at the U.S. Capitol complaining about Donald Trump enforcing U.S. immigration law.

“It’s ridiculous to think that the way to protect the border is to put children in cages,” the House minority leader said in remarks to the House press corps.

One reporters asked Pelosi a question about building a wall to stem the tide of illegal immigration. “Would it be better to build a wall at the border that stops people from illegally crossing it than have to arrest them when they do?” the reporter asked.

Pelosi answered, notably frustrated. “No. It would not be better to build a wall. A wall is ineffective, expensive, immoral,” Pelosi said. (RELATED: Democratic Candidate Arrested At Detention Center After Getting Destroyed By Border Patrol Agent)

But then she seemed to acknowledge that there may be places where a “structure” would be “useful” for “security.”

“And where there might some places where it’s useful from a security and a mutually agreed-upon protection for each side to have some structure, let’s see what that is,” she continued.

She admitted that the wall might be “better for security in some places” but the Democrat speaker said that the Democratic stance is to build bridges to Mexico, not walls.

“It’s not better to build a wall. What’s better to do is to build a bridge,” Pelosi said.

Pelosi went on to say that Trump is incapable of “civilized human behavior.”
